After years of work and multiple rounds of public review and comment, the final draft of the Sacramento County Climate Action Plan
(CAP) has been released! This final draft will be available for public review for a period of 30 days before moving on for approval and implementation. Public comments will be accepted through Oct. 8, 2021.
It’s no secret the region has been affected by climate change. More and more it seems like the Sacramento region is impacted by smoke from nearby fires that burn more intensely and frequently than in years past, and most of the state is currently experiencing extreme drought.
The CAP is our plan to reduce Sacramento County’s contribution to climate change while addressing the impact climate change has already had on the area.
“We have taken the time to really listen to what our residents have had to say about the various drafts of our Climate Action Plan,” said Todd Smith, Principal Planner. “We have put together a strong final draft that addresses residents’ concerns and sets us up to meet our ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.”
The Office of Planning and Environmental Review (PER) plans on bringing the CAP before the Planning Commission in October 2021. Once approved by the Planning Commission, the CAP will move on to the Sacramento Board of Supervisors for final approval, likely in early 2022.
